Children and Families

We warmly welcome children and families to visit AGWA and explore the exhibitions and collections together.

Our art trails, children’s labels, family tours, artist-led workshops and community events support young visitors to engage deeply with works of art and share their unique perspectives.

Ways of looking at art with your children.

  1. Ask open-ended questions.
  2. Trust your own responses, and be interested in theirs.
  3. Take a breath, and then notice how you feel. 
  4. Talk about not knowing all the answers.
  5. Share which works you like the most, and why.
  6. Look closely at the details.
  7. Choose the work you like the least.
  8. Spend a very long time looking at one work.
  9. Draw something inspired by a work of art you love.
  10. Find a work that reminds you of something or someone you love.
